Sourav Ganguly raced to hospital with chest pains just days after heart surgery

Sourav Ganguly has again been raced to hospital, just weeks after undergoing heart surgery.

The Indian cricket legend, who is the current president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, suffered a mild heart attack at the beginning of the month.

He later underwent angioplasty at the Woodlands Hospital after he was diagnosed with three blockages in the coronary artery.

The 48-year-old was discharged from hospital on January 7, but has now been taken to the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata.

Reports from India claim the former captain of his country experienced discomfort in his chest and was taken straight to the emergency room.

Ganguly had thanked doctors for his initial treatment, previously saying: “I am absolutely fine. Hopefully, I will be ready to fly soon.”

News18 report that Ganguly is in a stable condition, though will have to remain in hospital for two days.

Two more stents were due to be implanted on his coronary arteries in the coming weeks, though reports suggest they will be put in now.

Current India star Shikhar Dhawan tweeted to Ganguly: “Sending prayers for your speedy recovery, Dada!”

Doctors at the private hospital where he first underwent surgery have said that the BCCI president may need to undergo second angioplasty at a "later stage”.

His initial diagnosis came after the former batsman suffered a blackout while exercising at his personal gym.
